So I've gotten some questions about my recent "taking new interior design clients" post on Facebook. I figured I should clarify the details for inquiring minds and potential new clients. :)
#1. Who are you to sell interior design services?
Good question. Even though I now work in professional ministry, my education (Go Noles!), background and training (Gensler) is in commercial interior design. From 2005- 2010 I worked in the design/architecture industry as a licensed designer/consultant before my whole life was turned upside down when I married Zach. :) Ever since, I have dabbled in residential design - in my own home and a few others when I've had time. It's a fun pastime and I enjoy helping people make their homes into spaces they can truly enjoy.
#2. What services do you offer?
At this point, basic design services and mostly decorating. Since this is a side job, I don't want to get back into architecture and dealing with all the details, drawings, permits, etc that come with construction changes. It's just a hassle. :)
For now, I offer 3 tiers of service:
1. Design X
This is for people who need help deciding on the direction they should go with a space- general color palette, furniture arrangement, etc. but are up for the challenge of finding the right products and pulling it all together themselves. I help you figure out your target, but it's up to you to pull it off!
2. Design MC^2
This is for people who need help deciding on the direction they should go AND need solid guidance on what products to put where. They need the right formula - product recommendations to achieve the desired look and feel and visual aids so they know exactly what to look for when shopping.
3. Design DIT
This is for people who need all the help they can get! Ha! For people who need us to do it together - I not only develop the design, but spec out exact product, tell them exactly what to purchase, and take them all the way to the finish line/finished product of the space.
#3. What if I don't live in Atlanta?
No worries. I can still offer services as long as you supply decent photos and dimensions of your space. Ideally I'd love to walk through it myself, but that is not required.
